belitung is island with beautiful beach, many granit stone in the beach, awesome, when u go to belitung you must read "laskar pelangi novel" n go to small island near belitung with boat n you can see excellent, hopping, awesome n the best island in the world
Belitung Island main attraction is the beaches. Tj Tinggi is deft the highlight. And you can do the Island Hopping start from Tj Kelayang and visit some more islands on the way to Lengkuas island where we can find the Mercu suar.
Buy all the souvenirs from Belitung at a place caled Restaurant Kebun ( Jl batu itam km 9, Sijuk Tj Pandan) and find the galery. Brand Called "Perniks" they have a lot of products for your souvenirs/gift need to bring home. You also can find them at the Galery KUKM at Jl Sriwijaya Tanjung Pandan. Beaurifull Tshirts and Gifts!! As for accomodation, Bukit Berahu is very recomended however they have a very limited room and its surely value for money. Or you can try Bahamas and Grand Pelangi Hotel as well.
Tanjung Pandan is the capital of Belitung Island. Very quiet city with nice people. You go here via flight, but if necessary you fo via ferry, but it takes more than 4 long-boring-hours just from neighbour-island Bangka.
Belitung have some nice beaches, but t o explore belitung You need to rent a car, so its better you have a check the rental price from some travel agent which you can easily browse / search at yellow pages
Nice Island, the most recommended activities is Hopping Islands, take lunch at the Island and go snorkling at Kepayang & Babi Island, beautiful under water, don't forget to bring your underwater camera.
..nice place to take photo specially at Tanjung Tinggi Beach..
Belitung pulau yg eksotis, indah, pantainya bersih...lautnya jernih, inilah hidden paradise, sayang pulau ini kurang promosinya hingga wisatawan masih sedikit ke pulau yg berjuluk "laskar pelangi"
Relatively under developed for a tourist spot but fairly OK for basic holiday facilities. Don't expect international chain hotel and western standard type of facilities and restaurants.
Sightseeing to beaches and islands (and gigantic granite stones) would be your unforgettable experience.
Belitung is a small but there are so many small island you can hoop in. The beaches are so beautiful, very white sand, clear blue water, quite and lots of big rocks.
You can just enjoy the view by lying on the beach, go to the light house, swim with the fishes and close the day by watching sunset in the top of big rocks.. Amazing. Food are very cheap. Seafood is the best (Cheap, fresh and so yummy). I see so many new things we cannot find anywhere else.
Belitung is just starting to develop its tourist attractions, hence if you go now you can't really see anything much beside the beaches and islands.
But trust me, the beaches and the islands are worth of your time to travel to this place. Island hopping is recommended, where you can swim and snorkel in the ocean with crystal clear water. Food is cheap and good, just ask the locals. Shopping places are almost non-existent.
very nice beach and sea...I was so satisfied can take snorling here...the water was very clear, beautiful under water at Kepayang and Babi Island.
..nice trip in Hopping Island, so nature...
traveler must visit pulau lengkuas and is make sure you spare sometimes climbing up the lighthouse it worth the view when you are up there.
Belitung is a small island and unlike some of the more touristy places in Indonesia (Bali, Jakarta for example) it is easy to get around.
Hiring a driver is the best way, they can find the hidden white sand beaches... Good for sunbathing and relaxation but not much else to do here so you might want to only spend a few days here.
Belitung is very nice island, have many beach with clear sand, the food is very good especially mie belitung and sop kepala ikan ketarap
We really enjoy our visit to Belitung. The city is clean, food was great and the beach was superb. Very recommended for a short getaway
the beaches are great - awesome natural 'decoration' by the huge rocks, the water is cool and not too cold, and it's still clean.
the small islands are great to visit and the price for renting boats are affordable. From the light house in one of the islands, the view is fantastic. better to visit those islands in a sunny day. snorkeling is also one thing to do, as the water beds are filled with gorgeous coral and beautiful sea creatures and the salt-level of the sea is quite high that you can easily float.
1. All the beaches around belitung is white sand, including all the island around it. 2. the view is very very beautiful 3.
the road to go out of town is very empty (only 1-2 cars or motorcycle in every 2-3minutes) 4. gas station is difficult to find.
Belitung is a must to visit if you love the sun and beach. The beaches have waters so clear that you can see the floor.
Definitely a great place for snorkelling. Two must-visit beaches are Tanjung Tinggi and Kelayang. Visit Kelayang beach to embark on an island-hopping trip. Taxis are privately-owned vehicles, always bargain before getting into one. Rent a car or a scooter and not worry about navigating as the road has signs to guide you. Food is delicious and economical although options may be limited. One of the best places to visit before you die, certainly.
Belitung has the most amazing beaches, one of the best in Indonesia. It is calm and clear, and blue with white sand.
It also hosts beautiful underwater species. Belitung is also for big granite rocks around its beach, creating a dramatic scenery. We can enjoy various activities during island hopping, such as snorkeling, diving, tanning, etc. You should expect to be outdoor most of time, and prepare to do so with comfy outfit, sunblock (LOADS), and sunglasses. The most scenic beaches are Tanjung Kelayang, Tanjung Tinggi, Lengkuas Island and Pulau Kepayang. I also enjoyed sightseeing around the island to taste its famous coffee shops (part of the local tradition), as well as scrumptious fresh seafood. Belitung has become famous destination because of the bestseller movie and novel Laskar Pelangi / Rainbow Troops, an inspiring story about local kids and their big dreams. So its quite interesting to see the Museum and the shooting places. Contact local travel in Belitung for local guide and experience, they know the best to offer in this island. p.s: Bring your best camera, you will get amazing pictures from here!!
Most people would love to come to Belitung again because the would have falling in love with the beaches in Belitung.
its small town with superb beach and friendly people, without traffic jammed, its good for relax and back to nature.
Take a boat to the lighthouse and snorkle. Not much to do at this island. Simple city but really beautiful beaches.
Belitung offers u. Beach and beach.. There's nothing than beach.. If u need relaxation,this is the right place!!
Belitung is a very nice place, the beaches are beautiful and the rock formation are the main attraction for me.
The very intriguing batu satam is one thing you must not overlooked. My regret are 1. the island is not well maintained, 2.Public transport is rare, 3.upgrade and maintained the museum, 4. Give a proper environmental enhancement to those poor creatures in the zoo!, 5. litter....litter....everywhere!If only they will address these issues, Belitung can be compared and compete to those world renowned beaches.
Belitung was a Tin Mining center of the world (Indonesia is still the largest Tin producer in the world).
East Belitung is developing very fast to become an international known holiday resort. There is 4% poverty (less then other parts of Indonesia) and is considered better as school & health care is free for the inhabitans. They all have a house to stay and own at least one motorcycle per household. Accesability is excellent but lacking public transportation, but car, bus and motorcycle rental are available and arangable at the Airport and hotel. Manggar is the capital of East Belitung Municipality. My suggestion is to spend more time around East Belitung as it is more natural and peacefull than West Belitung.
this island has lots of beautiful beaches but the government need to do more maintenance on those beaches
Belitung is an island and the main town is small - no shopping just nice beaches and not many resturants
Belitung is natural island. It has many unique beaches and islands... Come and enjoy this unique island!
Belitung island is the most my favorite one , i like it with all the beach at there . Very beautiful
